Massachusetts-based metallers HELL WITHIN have inked a multi-album worldwide deal with Thorp Records. The band will enter Damaged Studios (BURY YOUR DEAD, SEAMLESS, UNEARTH) in January with producer Pete Rutcho to begin recording its new album for a May 2010 release.
Commented Thorp Records co-founder Duane Miller: "HELL WITHIN plays a killer blend of metal, thrash and hardcore that is a natural extension of the more aggressive albums we've released over the last ten years. Plus, as Thorp Records is the home of hard-working music, we have tremendous respect for the tireless work ethic J.J., Tony, Derek, Isaias and Derek have demonstrated, playing hundreds of shows every year.'
The track "Condemning the Bloodline" from the upcoming effort is available for streaming using the audio player below.
HELL WITHIN in 2007 parted ways singer Matt McChesney, who left to front Daytona Beach, Florida's THE AUTUMN OFFERING. The group has since found a replacement vocalist in the shape of J.J. Long.
HELL WITHIN's last album, "Shadows of Vanity", was released in May 2007 on Lifeforce Records. The CD was tracked with longtime producer John Ellis and diligently mixed by Mark Lewis of AudioHammer Studios (TRIVIUM, BURY YOUR DEAD, GOD FORBID). Cover artwork was handled by acclaimed graphic designer and artist Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD).
